Cobwebs will spawn anywhere underground from right below the surface all the way down to the underworld. Cobwebs will break your fall temporarily, but will break away after a second of standing inside of one. You can use any tool or weapon to harvest cobwebs. Once you have obtained a decent supply of cobwebs head back to your crafting stations.


You will need a sawmill to craft a loom. Crafting a sawmill requires ten wood, two iron/lead bars, and a chain. Stand next to your anvil to craft chains from iron/lead bars and stand next to your workbench to make the sawmill.
